Header for SVP 1284 power connection


I want to connect power to the Orangutan SVP 1284 using the two through-holes (labelled Vin and GND) above the terminal block.

Does Pololu sell a header that I can solder into those holes that will fit in the space available?


Those holes are spaced 0.1" apart, so most headers with that spacing should work.

To make a male connection, you can buy a 0.100" (2.54 mm) Breakaway Male Header: 1x40-Pin, Straight, and break off two of the pins.

To make a female connection, you can buy a 0.100" (2.54 mm) Female Header: 1x2-Pin, Straight. This method is less safe because then the leads from your power supply will have to be male so they are more likely to get shorted to eachother or other parts of your project.
